TT Core Studio AECTech Hackathon - Best Overall Hack2019
Using our own pre-trained CycleGAN model of building sketches + images, our team developed a web interface to start sketching (using p5.js) that sends the sketch image to a RunwayML web server, which generates a "rendered" version of the image and returns it to the user in the same page.
